Wow! Two of our lovely friends have nominated us for the Kreativ Blogger award.
The first is Jodi Stone and her Life With Sampson and Delilah. This is one of the first blogs I started to read. I love the tales that come from these two and feel a lot of empathy for the things that Jodi goes through with Delilah, the slightly naughty rescue lab. There are lots of good tips to be found amongst those posts!
The second is Deanna and her mob at For the Love of my Dogs, although they’re not all dogs. I started following their blog a few weeks ago and just love the story of Scarlett. There’s always something going on over there.
Part of the award is that you have to think of 10 things that people might not know about you… this is the hard part… hmmm. I’ve had a few days to think about it but am still finding it difficult.
1. I lived in Hong Kong for 18 years, followed by time in Scotland, Switzerland and now Australia.
2. I am a zoologist and a teacher, but I wanted to be an air stewardess, then a vet nurse, then an RSPCA Inspector when I was younger.
3. I think less is more when it comes to Christmas lights on houses but not when it comes to Christmas choccies like Ferrero Rocher and Almond Rocca.
4. I think the word ‘plump’ should be used more. It’s a great word. So is ‘discombobulated’. If enough people share my opinion of Christmas choccies then I predict a good future for these words!
5. I am a Scot who prefers gin & tonic to whiskey (sorry Grandad).
6. I overcame an adult onset fear of dogs 3 years ago…. paaaahaaaaa now look at me with my 40kg hound!
7. I LOVE pedicures, but only the good ones, you know, where they put your feet in bags of hot wax.
8. I make a mean lemon meringue pie.
9. I hit a hole in one with my (vomit-inducing) pink golf clubs much to the disgust of real golfers everywhere.
10. I am utterly disturbed by the thought of a butterfly landing on me.
There! Did it. Now for the FUN part – passing it on!
1. Wazeau’s World. It’s a world of beautiful parrots and felines. 🙂
2. Uptown Dog. This is one of our faves… Uptown Dog has recently moved to the big smoke of NY. Follow his adventures in his new city.
3. Bonesdiary. I’m a sucker for blogs that make me laugh and this one certainly does!
4. Something Wagging This Way Comes. There are so many varied posts on Something Wagging. I love it.
And so to the season which hurtles towards us…
I wondered what Fergus, George and Flo would put on their Christmas wish list. Flo’s a dog, so everything to her is ‘my favourite thing’… well, maybe she’s not as bad as a spaniel, but you know what I mean. She’s generally easy to please. Here’s what I imagine their lists would look like…
2. Lots of puppy play sessions.
3. Being allowed to evicerate toys without getting ‘that look’.
4. Disposable thumbs; the world’s your oyster with disposable thumbs – you could open your own biscuit barrel, open tins of tuna (even the ones with those little pull-things) pick up those little carpentaria palm seeds, pinch the cats, write your own Christmas list (and cheques)…
6. Uninterrupted access to Fergus and George’s food bowls.
1. More food.
2. No Flo.
3. No Fergus.
4. A gecko that can’t run away.
5. A shorter tail that doesn’t get trodden on as much.
6. Sushi (salmon or tuna please).
1. No George. Actually, no other cats at all.
2. A free pass to stay out all night.
3. A cage-free existence.
4. Somewhere quiet to sleep all day.
5. A frog.
6. No more trips to the v-e-t.
On the subject of the shaved one… she continues to do well, albeit in her caged environment. I am really hoping that the v-e-t says we can release her to a room this week when we visit. She does still have a slightly concerning lump on her chest, but it doesn’t seem to bother her and it’s not interfering with her eating or digestion. Fingers crossed. She’s taken very well to this new life of hers and really doesn’t complain at all. I am still amazed by her… and feel very lucky. I’ve been leaving the door of her room open so that she can see George and vice-versa. It’s very strange – George, who is Fergus’ number one tormentor, is very reluctant to enter her room at all. I’m not sure what’s going on there. She hasn’t appeared disturbed by his presence at the door or in the room when he has come in, but he’s just keeping his distance. This makes me uneasy. What’s he planning?
